Where did you get that TLR?

After using so many cameras with no or lousy viewfinders I've become very comfortable using an LCD screen. Not at arm's length, but with elbows tucked in. Anyway, I'm old enough to have used many film cameras that didn't have viewfindrs. For those of you that dislike lcd screens, just think about framing with a TLR. Upside down, reversed, B & W.

Twin-lens reflex finders were reversed right to left (really good for following action...) but they certainly weren't upside down (although the ground glass on my 4X5 was) and there's no way they could be black and white. What happened is that the film was usually black and white.
